Premier League betting – Blackpool vs Arsenal
Blackpool vs Arsenal betting odds, tips & free bets
The Sunday lunchtime clash sees two sides that are both out of form but desperate for wins in different circumstances. Arsenal haven’t won any of their last 5 matches in all competitions and the Premier League remains their only chance of silverware this season so they will be looking for 3 points to keep them in the title race. Blackpool though, haven’t won in their last 4 matches and are looking for 3 valuable points to steer them away from the drop zone.
The first half of the season looked so promising for Blackpool but just 1 league win in their last 11 games has seen them slip to just 1 place above the drop zone going into the last 7 games of the season. If the Seasiders are to survive this season then they will have to improve their home form, they currently have the worst record in the league winning just 4 of their 14 games and have picked up just 15 points. Dj Campbell is set to return to the side for the weekend though after serving his 3 game ban and should go straight into the team. The Striker is Blackpool’s top scorer this season and a great bet at 4.0 with Skybet to score at any time. Blackpool’s poor home form is represented in their odds for the match on Sunday with the home side being priced at long as 9.5 with Stan James to get the win.
Although Arsenal have not won in their last 5 games in all competitions they are still unbeaten in 13 league games but have fallen behind in the race for the title recently. The Gunners do though only have the league to concentrate on and have to face current leaders Manchester United before the end of the season. Robin Van Persie is Arsenal’s top scorer in the league this season with 11 goals from 17 games and is looking good to open the scoring on Sunday with odds of 4.5 available at Unibet. The Gunners are firm favourites to turn their poor recent form around and looking good for a 3-1 win with odds of 11.5 at Unibet. Arsenal also boast the best away record in the league with 7 wins and only two defeats from 14 games and the return of captain Cesc Fabregas should give them an extra boost.
